The West Midlands is undergoing a transport revolution. Old railway stations will be reopened. Ground-breaking Very Light Rail networks are being designed. Miles upon miles of Metro tram tracks are being laid to link up communities. Fleets of electric buses are taking to our streets.
As we plot our route out of the pandemic, transport will be vital if we are to get our local economies moving again. While trams, trains and HS2 make headlines as construction sites spring up along new routes, the bus network remains the workhorse of public transport in the UK.
